Many of us are going to be inundated with cardboard boxes over the holidays or you have them already. Save them and you can tackle a project like this. A parking garage would be great for a little boy. I can see it my head already with several floors and ramps.
This project is still very much a work in progress. I will be adding some touches of color with paper but I really want to keep it simple (you know me - what else is new). The house is about 17" tall and is made out of chipboard that I had leftover from a previous project. I'll post it in all its humble glory when I'm done. Oops... I forgot to take photos of the process.
Rainy day = poor lighting - This is the best shot I have. The clips are there because it was still drying at the time. The house is all dry now and the glue isn't visible.
As far as this project is concerned you're probably wondering why I didn't save it for Christmas. Well I don't know the answer to that one. Call it a spur of the moment-need to entertain daughter (and mom)-project.
Today the kids have also been outside playing with several of our neighbors. They've all been drawing on our drive-way (guess who provides drawing materials/chalk?), racing cars and proving Mom wrong by showing off how Legos do float in puddles (provided by today's on-again off-again rain).
I probably won't be posting for the rest of the week so I hope that everyone enjoys the rest of it. To those of you who celebrate the upcoming holiday like we do - Happy Thanksgiving! Until next week!
